Our two-person isolating household is getting more Covid recommendation-breaker angry.
Yes, we’re getting out and hiking and rambling, but always just the two of us, with our masks and our sanitizer. And we stay within a near radius.
When Ontario and Quebec have imposed lockdowns and travel bans, why are there apparently skiers from those provinces in Whistler, BC?
How did they get here, if they’re not supposed to travel even within their own provinces?
Hell, all of us in BC are strongly counselled not to travel outside our communities.
We are told we shouldn’t visit elderly relatives who live minutes away. So how are the tourists getting here?
Our political leaders are saying this is beyond their control.
No, it is NOT.
To get to BC you either have to cross an international border, which is supposedly closed, or you have to fly in (which is supposedly tough, but apparently not so much), or you can drive in on very few few cross-provincial highways that would be easy to control.
I walked from Edmonds Skytrain Station in SE #Burnaby to 22nd St. Station and back after lunch. It was quiet, only a couple of Anna’s Hummingbirds (one at our feeder and one on the trail), a few robins, and assorted sparrows in Taylor Park.
There were some lovely colors to be found in berries and leaves along the way. . .
The Alex Fraser Bridge as seen from the urban trail. Deliberately underexposed to enhance the brooding appearance.
